The Bien Nacido 2011 Syrah was produced from an iconic American vineyard located in the Santa Maria Valley of California’s Central Coast. Made in the traditional Old World northern Rhône style, this Syrah is earthy, spicy and powerful with an impressive concentration of aromas and flavors.

Inky ruby in color, the Bien Nacido Syrah is seductively aromatic with exotic notes of white pepper, dark fruit, cassis, tar, and violets. The palate is rich and bright with flavors of lively cherry and dark blackberry fruit with hints of olive, earth, wild herbs, and exotic Asian spice. Firm tannins offer a nice balance to the ample acidity and linger on the penetrating finish.
